About Hotel Shangri La Santa Monica

Art Deco glamour across the street from the Pacific Ocean

Coastal location
Hotel Shangri La Santa Monica offers ocean views from nearly every guestroom across from a tourist-packed stretch of the Pacific. You can tan while lying out on the nearby sandy beach or take the kids to ride Santa Monica Pier's iconic Ferris wheel.

Sun-drenched diversions
The pier is a 10-minute stroll down the block, offering diversions such as an old-fashioned carousel ride or concerts during the summer. Third Street Promenade, a shopper's delight with plenty of places to refuel on food and drink, is 2 minutes away on foot.

Hello, gorgeous
This Art Deco hotel gleams in old-fashioned Hollywood glamour and decor. A penthouse-level bar, Suite 700, and an onsite spa are among the celebrity-drawing services, in addition to poolside cocktails, a dining room overlooking the Pacific, and 24-hour room service.

Ocean oasis
Uniquely styled guestrooms include free WiFi and many feature ocean views. Opt for a suite, and you are treated to a gourmet, stainless-steel kitchen and deep soaking tub.

Happy,relaxed stay
The hotel is wonderfully situated for access to the beach, the pier and the shops and restaurants of Ocean Blvd and Third street. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and most attentive. Nothing was too much trouble; from organising a taxi to the airport and ensuring our luggage was safely stored as well as printing boarding cards and providing toothpaste that we had forgotten! We had an opportunity to meet the manager and some of the front of house staff at an informal drinks gathering which was a friendly touch. We also enjoyed the buzzing,vibrant atmosphere of the rooftop terrace bar that overlooked the ocean and was a great place from which to view the sunset. Our room was clean and pleasant. One drawback for us as an 'older' couple was getting into the deep bathtub to take shower! Even with the aid of a step-stool it was a difficult manoeuvre. However we had a happy, relaxing stay at a very friendly, comfortable hotel and would not hesitate to return in the future.

Hotel Shangri La Santa Monica
Amazing place
Prime location, right on the ocean and promenade. Staff were very nice and welcoming. They even cared when my cab took too long to arrive and came outside to see if everything was alright. Staff extra polite and they seemed to care a lot if I had a good stay. Nice room, and i have to admit, after trying hundreds of hotels around the world, their beds! The comfiest .:: I should have looked at the mattress brand;).. I recommend this place:)
